Released on November 2, 2017
With cooler temperatures and snow in many areas, the ban on open fires for all provincial Crown land south of Highway 16, including provincial parks and recreation sites, is now lifted. The ban was put in place October 19.
There are now no active provincial fire bans in Saskatchewan.
Municipalities as well as regional and national parks may have burning restrictions in place that are not affected by lifting the provincial ban.
Please check with local authorities to see if other restrictions apply in your area, or where you plan to travel. Please take care when using fire for any purpose.
To report a wildfire, call the province’s toll-free Firewatch number at 1-800-667-9660.
